Residential Care Homes
Residential Care Homes bridge the gap between Independent Living and Nursing Homes – offering a comfortable and friendly environment for seniors who can no longer live on their own. Also referred to as a group home or an adult family home, these communities are usually smaller than a typical Assisted Living residence, are often faith-based, and offer more concentrated care for individuals with mobility and functionality issues. Experienced providers of recreational, social, and psychological services, Residential Care Homes deliver top quality care for retirees just like you.
A close-knit community of peers and caregivers, Residential Care Homes are designed to ensure seniors enjoy the greatest degree of independence possible. Housekeeping is provided for all residents, as well as laundry service, and home cooked meals are prepared and served on-site. Trained dieticians are available to assist you with designing an optimized meal plan – which caters specifically to your medical, religious, and nutritional needs. Both short and long term care are available, as well as respite care, counselling, and rehabilitative services for individuals recovering from illness or surgery. Staffed by well-trained care aids and nurses, Residential Care Homes can also provide specialized assistance for conditions such as Alzheimer's disease.
Offering an ongoing schedule of outings and events, residents participate a colourful variety of fitness classes, arts and crafts groups, gardening opportunities, day trips, and more. Most Residential Care Homes have long-established relationships with volunteer-based organizations – resulting in a wealth of opportunities for seniors to interact with the local community.
